IRC Channel

The CLUG IRC Channel is #clug and can be found on the Atrum IRC network at on ports 6666-6668 (plain), or 6697,7000,7001 (SSL).

You can connect using your favourite IRC client. We have recommended some clients for Linux further down on this page. #clug is hidden from channel listings, so you'll have to /join #clug.

If you have firewall restrictions try connecting to on port 21, or similarly for ports 80, 110 and 8080.

You can also use a web-based chat app -- if you're completely new to IRC this is a good way to get started.


Cape should, however, resolve to the closest server geographically.
